    It would have been cool for you to tell the folks about what you’ve done to get this desktop, and especially what applications you have running on the desktop and icons.

    Might want to censor your friends’ email addresses there…

    Pretty spiffy desktop, though.

    Change the green color font of conky
    You can add the weather script on conky
    add the cube and rotating option for compiz
    Since you’re using cairo,limit the icons on the upper panel

    Looks horrid. Using a less busy wallpaper would help.

    I’m surprised at some of these responses. Desktop art is a matter of taste. Some people didn’t like yours, but I did and I’d like to thank you for taking the time to post this. People can take what you’ve done and your suggestions and sources and configure theirs to suit themselves. The details and updates are nice, I’m busy and now I have them all in one place and don’t have to search all over for them. I prefer purple, blue and orange but your green theme is one of the nicest I’ve seen. Yes, please publish the conkyrc file.

    Thank you
